The portrait in egg tempera/oil mixed media
We will discover a fascinating painting technique that replaced the original, purely water based egg tempera in the late Renaissance. It allows for an efficient picture composition:
On a tinted ground (the imprimatura), the corporeal is first developed in chiaroscuro and, in a second step, enlivened through colored glazes. The depth of color thus produced, even with a limited, historical palette, exceeds in intensity and delicacy the possibilities of a pure oil painting and creates a coherent harmony of colors.
A more detailed description of the painting technique and the material list can be found in the attached Word document and more information about the teacher at: http://www.daniel-friedemann.com.
